ULURU AYERS ROCK TOUR (COCKATOO)

Our 3 day Uluru (Ayers Rock) tour offers a value for money experience in Australia's Red Centre. This is our budget friendly Uluru tour, but still offers a quality Wayoutback experience.

 

We spend our first night under the Outback stars and within viewing distance of Uluru (Ayers Rock). The next morning we get up to watch the sunrise over Uluru and the surrounding landscape. It's only a short distance to Uluru (Ayers Rock), while many tour companies are a 100+ km drive away. We get you up early, but not as early as they do!

 

On this trip Wayoutback stays at private campsites giving you the opportunity to sleep around a campfire in an authentic Aussie Swag and shower under hot water generated from a wood burner. Travel in an air-conditioned minibus and absorb the incredible, outback landscapes with your experienced tour guide – all of this while travelling with other fun loving and active travellers from all over the world. Explore Uluru (Ayers Rock), Kata Tjuta and Kings Canyon on this Uluru tour to remember – a truly unique way to travel Australia.

 

This tour is part of our Alice Springs to Darwin and Darwin to Alice Springs packages. If you're looking for a similar tour that departs and finishes at Ayers Rock Airport, check out our very popular Galah Dreaming Tour

Tour Itinerary


(Lunch* / Dinner) It’s an early rise if you are joining us in Alice Springs where you will make the journey to Ayers Rock and meet our fellow travellers joining us there. On arrival to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, visit a camel farm and discover life atop one of the regions earliest forms of transport. This afternoon embark on an interpretive base walk of Uluru. Those choosing to climb will have the opportunity to do so, weather permitting. (Note: Uluru is a sacred site and the Anangu people ask visitors to respect their law and do not climb). The Cultural Centre is impressive and well worth a visit before watching the ever changing colours of Uluru at sunset. After dinner, some stories and stargazing, it’s time for a good night’s rest at our private campsite before another active day tomorrow.

After dinner this evening, you may choose to view the Field of Light art installation (optional and additional expense).

After being collected from a location close to your campsite you will be transferred to the Field of Light. Enjoy a walk through this incredible light display at your own pace before being transferred back to our campsite. The exhibition, aptly named Tili Wiru Tjuta Nyakutjaku or ‘looking at lots of beautiful lights’ in local Pitjantjatjara is Bruce Munro’s largest work to date. Overwhelming in size, covering more than seven football fields, it invites immersion in its fantasy garden of 50,000 spindles of light, the stems breathing and swaying through a sympathetic desert spectrum of ochre, deep violet, blue and gentle white.

We highly recommend booking your Field of Light experience in advance as this does book out in advance. This can be done at the same time as placing your reservation with us. If booking on-line choose the ‘Book now’ button on this page, select your date of travel and number of passengers to display the Field of Light option under ‘OPTIONAL EXTRAS’. All Field of Light bookings are on request and will be confirmed within 24 hours of placing booking. Our reservations team will be in touch if there is no availability on your departure date, otherwise you are ready to experience this magical once in a lifetime experience.

(Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner) Your guide will wake you bright and early to experience a mesmerising Uluru sunrise, early mornings being such a magical time in the desert. Then it’s a short drive to Kata Tjuta (the Olgas), an aboriginal word for “many heads”, to explore its domes of which there are 36 in total. Pull on your hiking boots and take the Valley of the Winds walk through creek beds, domes and beautiful wilderness. After lunch, it’s farewell to Uluru – Kata Tjuta National Park as we travel to Kings Creek Station to spend the night at our private camp. 

(Breakfast / Lunch) This morning we enter the Watarrka (Kings Canyon) National Park, home of a mighty chasm with sheer red rock faces which soar over 100 metres above lush palm forests. The rim of Kings Canyon is a 6km round trip walk and you will visit the Amphitheatre, Lost City and tranquil Garden of Eden. After our final meal together we begin our journey back to Alice Springs arriving in the late afternoon. 

WHAT TO BRING


Torch, wide brimmed hat, sunscreen, insect repellent, water bottle (1.5 litres), walking shoes/boots, sleeping bag (or can be hired for $30), toiletries, swim wear, towel, camera, comfortable and casual clothing for 3 days.
